SAN ANTONIO – The Kansas women’s golf team shot 297 (+9) on the 6,333-yard, par-72 Dominion Country Club to finish the day in seventh, one stroke behind sixth-place Texas Tech and 10 strokes behind leader Iowa State after the first round of the 2016 Big 12 Championship Friday.
“We gave most of our shots away today on the greens. They are rolling slowly and we can do a better job with playing less break and hitting putts firmer,” KU head coach Erin O’Neil said. “We also made adjustments to a couple of tee shots for tomorrow to help put us in better position to hit the green in regulation on some of the narrower holes.”
Kansas was led by senior Yupaporn Kawinpakorn and junor Pornvipa “Faii” Sakdee, who both shot even-par scores of 72. The duo is tied for eighth, three strokes behind tournament leader Madison Talley of Kansas State. Sakdee recorded a (-3) on the front nine, only to offset it with a (+3) performance on the back nine. Kawinpakorn had a steadier performance, shooting even on both halves of the course.
“Faii got a little worked up after turning at (-3) and nerves got in the way for a few holes,” O’Neil said. “She was able to finish with a birdie on 18 to get it back to even par. This course sets up well for her and if she stays patient and present she can shoot low numbers the next couple of days.”
KU freshman Ariadna Fonseca provided support with a 76 (+4) to tie for 33rd. Sophomore Pitsinee Winyarat scored 77 (+5) to tie for 37th. Freshman Victoria Chandra sits at 43rd after recording a 78 (+6).
The second round of the three-round Big 12 Championship will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 23. Live stats can be found at GolfStat.com.
